Ok, good. Thanks for doing that.

So, I think that this driver has seen a bunch of testing and reviewing
and we might start considering upstreaming it. There are a bunch of
laptops integrating those readers and maybe a single three-month-ish -rc
period of testing wouldn't hurt before it appears upstream.

Now, AFAICT, there is another driver in staging which supports the same
or a subset of the cardreaders this driver does so I don't know what
Realsil want to do with that. Wei?

And since this driver touches multiple drivers/{mfd,mmc,memstick}
subdirs, maybe akpm would like to merge it? At least I haven't seen any
other maintainers complaining about its design or wanting to take it so
